From The News Gazette:

The trees are being delivered, the heavy equipment has been arranged, the crews have their assignments and all systems are a go – almost – for Saturday’s mass tree-planting in tornado-raked Gifford.

On Friday, crews will distribute each of the trees to individual lots in the northeast Champaign County town of about 900 people.  At 7:30 a.m. Saturday, five two-person crews will begin digging holes with 36-inch augers for each tree to be planted in.

Moore Trees is on of the nurseries providing trees.  Pictured are Jorge Gutirres, Stu Purcell and Jim Goss of Moore Trees, LLC.
